The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked, the showers had hr water and the wifi worked throughout the entire property. Liz is a wonderful host and storyteller who knows a ton about the region. I highly recommend a night or two as you work your way...

I attended Ballyeamon Barn on Saturday night with an Irish language group I'm a member of. The place was lovely with absolutely beautiful surroundings & Liz was extremely kind & welcoming. A fantastic host. Would recommend to anyone. Especially the talent night on a Saturday evening in which local musicians and artists gather to share their gift.

Guardians of the Wifi were evoked here, they spread their power across the barn. The hostel was clean from head to toe and the beds were fresh in their rows. There was an overwhelming sense of community for the wayward soul, the true love of Ireland will be something that you begin to know. Liz is so welcoming and wonderful,...

Definately stay here! Its so warm and welcoming, in a stunning landscape of trees, valleys and a few miles from the coast. I stayed in the apartment, which was really spacious, clean, warm and nice, with comfort and great atmosphere, and views of nature at its absolute finest! Thankyou so much for making my stay so memorable, enjoyable and relaxing

What a lovely place, the location, the views, the facilities, it was perfect for our large group. And Liz was such a welcoming and thoughtful hostess.

I left a piece of my heart there. The scenary around the barn (10 minutes by car from Cushendall) is absolutely mesmerising. And once you step a foot in, you won't be just a guest, you'll be part of the family and everyone will look after you like they've been knowing you for ages. I will be back, no doubt!

Ballyeamon Barn is a wonderful, rustic retreat near Cushendall, NI. And Liz Weir is an exciting, informed, dynamic host. Our family of three had a most memorable 3-day stay. Great meals, beautiful site-seeing and stimulating conversation with the assortment of International Guests who also found their way to Ballyeamon Barn. This is the place for a lifetime experience in the...
